The chalet adopts a form of elevated stilt construction more commonly found in warmer climates or in flood zones. The stilts lift the building above a sheltered ground floor area with an outdoor stove. This outdoor space is loosely defined by the cross-bracing of the stilts around the perimeter of the building.
The external surfaces are clad in panels of white concrete and corrugated metal, creating a crisp gabled outline that blends into the white landscape. The wooden substructure is left exposed in the interior to create warm-toned living spaces.
